      iFi ZenDAC 4.4mm Out has no right to sound this GOOD with HD 600. Props to @iFi audio for a lovely TI PCM implementation and clean amp stage

      Thankful to have Ether CX here, tuning is spot on! Perfect headphone for late night listening/editing

        I hear what you describe, say switching between HD580 and the CX, when watching video with a lot of dialog. However, when playing music I prefer the dynamic headphone. The CX loses something critical for me, which is the dynamic flow of the music.

        Honestly I'm so blessed to have a friend who sings, and sings well! It kinda sucks tho, after hanging out with her over a few months there's a handful of popular music I can't quite enjoy as much after hearing a living breathing... soul sing it!

      So I've got a [Birgir] CCS Modded 007tA in-bound and I'm thinking maybe an HE60 would be worthwhile!

        How did you do that? That is serious end-game territory.

        How? Umm I paid for it... 70/80 hour works weeks pile up over a year that and I was shocked at how quickly my Mid Fi stuff sold soo before you know it BAM a lot of end game magic was very obtainable

        Haven't bought the headphone yet but it's very tempting and within reach,

        For e-stat advise, the best place would be www.head-case.org, which is the home of all e-stat aficionados, including Spritzer.

        Sooooooooooooooooo I wound up getting a modded SRM 007tA and now it's time to sell some of my mid fi crap and buy a SR 009 to match my new amp! My 95X needs a compliment

        The results of my aforementioned experiment is first hand experience in that "prototypes" are fickle. Sometimes AMAZING other times... not so much and frankly unwavering consistency is just as important as sound quality

      I highly recommend the Vinyl of Metallica's S&M over the CDs, after some digging I've confirmed the dynamic range is audibly better

        The DVD is also way better than the CDs, although it's pretty rare. Picked mine up on eBay about 10 years ago. Has 4 diff audio tracks; lossy DD 5.1, PCM stereo, and lossy stereo of separate band/orchestra.

      New Decade Resolution for me is getting back to me, getting back in touch with my passion for music itself. Not just listening to it

      Here I am at like 43 dB idle noise jealous of these significantly quieter spaces... I guess it could be worse in my apartment

        It's a cheap meter. My house is small and with a very compact layout. HVAC and return are all setup in such a way to be loud as hell when it comes on.

        The old RS 3300099 is reliable to 30 dBA. I have several here and checked them all against the B&K 4231 and cross calibration at various SPL with ACO 7046 using pink noise through a Genelec 8030 at 25 cm. edit: at standard room temp only - accuracy reduced at other temperatures.

        I have a Check Mate CM 140 that I mounted to measure my ambient figure, I will admit the fridge is sorta loud. Enough that I cut it off to shoot videos, can't do that for listening everyday tho

        But I can get a consistent 39.4 - 39.8 reading in the middle of my office at night. 41.3-42 dBa during the day. [Also I rent]

        If you want the HF experience, go get it. You know what it is going to be. No surprises.

        You have an option: don't.

        I'd pass on anything from Audioquest, just because of dishonest audioquackery cable bollocks business model. But Dragonfly used to be ok, didn't it?

        @Torq has a wonderfully through write up on Cobalt on headphones.com, apparently the DF Red is a bit more behaved frankly I'm not a fan of the brand as DF Black was meh and now Cobalt is super ehh

        Pad swaps seem to do a lot for Hifiman cans; just pad swapped my HE-560 and like it a lot more.
